6WIND and Red Hat team up in this DemoFriday™ to teach you how to build network function virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) and eliminate network bottlenecks when transitioning to software-based NFV.
6WIND with Red Hat Demo: High-Performance Routing Synopsis:
This 6WIND with Red Hat demo features 6WINDGate high-performance NFV packet processing software and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. The demo details the 6WINDGate Open vSwitch (OVS) Acceleration module, a key feature for appliances based on generic platforms that makes it possible for customers to build high-performance networking applications using standard Linux OSs, hypervisors, and management without modifying existing architecture.
6WIND Product Manager Yann Rapaport and Red Hat’s Glenn Rudolph, global partner and alliances ISV, teach you how to build NFVI to increase performance for VNFs such as virtual routing and security applications. They cover:
- How 6WINDGate can accelerate virtual switch function to deliver more than 10x performance transparently without having to recompile the standard OVS
- How to accelerate virtual switch function without changing anything in Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, the Kernel-based virtual machine (KVM)/ QEMU hypervisor, or OpenFlow controller
- How the 6WINDGate OVS Acceleration module can help users extend their existing Red Hat solution based on OVS, KVM/Qemu hypervisor, or OpenStack to build high-performance NFV applications on virtual equipment.
